MSNBC was having Temper Tantrum Night on Thursday over the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Arizona voting laws — “restrictions” in liberal lingo. Joy Reid warned on Thursday night their ruling on Arizona was another “violent blow to democracy.” Chris Hayes claimed the conservative movement is radicalizing on the notion of denying voters of color.

But it was front-page news that Manhattan’s District Attorney, an elected Democrat, announced tax fraud charges against the Trump Organization. The New York Times touted “Trump’s Business Charged in ‘Audacious’ Tax Scheme: Prosecutors Describe 15 Years of Hiding Executives’ Luxury Perks and Bonuses.”
USA Today put the Trump-tax prosecution at the top of Page 1. “Charges muddy Trump’s future,” was the headline. “Journalists muddy Trump’s future” has been a headline every day since 2015.
